Michigan’s Snyder Vetoes Bill on Concealed Guns in School

Updated on

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder vetoed a bill that would have allowed concealed guns in public schools that lawmakers had approved less than 24 hours before a gunman killed 20 elementary school children in Connecticut.

Snyder, a 54-year-old Republican, said he rejected the measure primarily because it didn’t allow day care centers, hospitals and other public entities to opt out, according to a letter sent yesterday to the state Senate.
